WHAT ARE WATER FILTERS?

Water filters are used to remove unwanted impurities from water. They lower the contamination of water using one of three processes, a physical barrier, a chemical process, or a biological process. The aim of the water filter is to produce safe and clean water.

BRITA COMMERCIAL WATER FILTERS

Alongside the domestic Filter Jugs, BRITA also produce commercial water filters for your coffee machine or hot water tap. Expertly designed, the BRITA Purity C range improves water quality in a safe and clean way. The Trusted Systematic Filter Technology decarbonises water in four steps. These filters are easy to operate and the integrated flush valve means they are space-saving.

ABOUT BRITA

BRITA are on a mission to change the way people drink water sustainably. Founded in 1966 by Heinz Hankammer, he had the idea to optimise mains water in a convenient and simple way. It was a family affair, with members of the Hankammer family making the first products under the pear trees in their garden. From here the business grew with the first BRITA water filter jug for home use being launched in the early 1970’s and the company going international in the early 1980’s.

In 1999 BRITA established a new recycling programme which set new sustainability standards. Their aim is to offer their customers sustainable solutions with their products. Today, you will find a carbon footprint of one litre of BRITA-optimised water is up to 25 times smaller than that of bottled water.

Now under the management of Heinz Hankammer son, Markus, BRITA is a globally active company with over 20 billion litres of water running through their products every year.

FAQ

How long does a BRITA filter last?
Depending on the hardness of your water and the size of your machine a BRITA filter can last for up to as long as it takes to pass between 1,100 l to 6,000 l of water. We would recommend changing at least once a year.

A BRITA filter is connected to the pipework between the mains water supply and the machine using a filter head. Once connected water will run through the filter and into the machine. Remember to change your filter at least every 12 months.
How to change a BRITA filter?
Changing a BRITA filter is straight forward with the innovative locking handle, but you can call Liquidline and one of our engineers will be able to do this for you.
How does a BRITA filter work?
As the water runs through the filter, the Systematic Filter Technology softens water in four steps.
  1.  Pre-filtration which gathers course particles.
  2. Total hardness reduction, a filter medium reduces limescale and gypsum deposits
  3. Activated carbon filtration reduces the taste and aroma impairing substances in the water
  4. Fine filtration, in the final step the water passes through a fleece which retains any fine particles.
How often to change a BRITA filter?
We would recommend changing your BRITA filter at least at least every 12 months, but this does depend on the water hardness in your area and the size of your machine. If you are unsure, please feel free to contact a member of the Liquidline team for advice.
